AVRAM GRANT is aiming for a third FA Cup quarter-final in four seasons as West Ham do battle with Burnley tonight.

Grant reached the last eight with Chelsea in 2008 and took Portsmouth to the Final last season.

He seems to love the tournament and will field a strong side against Championship Burnley at Upton Park.

The Hammers have already knocked out Championship sides Barnsley and Nottingham Forest and have won their last nine ties against lower-league opposition.

I think they'll add Burnley to their list of scalps as long as they take the tie seriously.

Grant's side are a best 1-1 with Betfred while rejuvenated Burnley will have backers at 3-1 with Paddy Power. The draw pays 11-4 at Stan James.

The Israeli boss is set to field new boy Demba Ba up front alongside Carlton Cole and the former Hoffenheim striker is 13-2 with bet365 to score first. Cole is 11-2 with 888sport and top scorer Victor Obinna 6-1 at William Hill and bet365.

Burnley have plenty of firepower but their biggest threat could come from midfielder Chris Eagles who has often shone on big cup occasions. He is 12-1 with Ladbrokes to strike first.

Eddie Howe's visitors have lost just once in six and he's done a great job since arriving from Bournemouth last month.

While Burnley might not win this they should hit the target and both teams to score pays 4-6 with bodog and William Hill.

The winners of the tie will travel to Stoke after last night's quarter-final draw.

Man United are 9-4 cup favourites with Ladbrokes even though they face a home clash against Arsenal if they win their replay against Orient.

The Gunners are 7-2 with Manchester City  while it's 9-1 Everton, 14-1 Bolton, Birmingham, Stoke, 16-1 Aston Villa, 33-1 bar.

FA Cup quarter-final draw

  • Birmingham v Bolton
  • Man City or Aston Villa v Everton or Reading
  • Man United v Leyton Orient or Arsenal
  • Stoke v West Ham or Burnley

Meanwhile, Grant is still favourite in the next manager to leave market at 11-8 with Ladbrokes and Chelsea's Carlo Ancelotti is the well-backed 3-1 second favourite.
